Several years ago purchased (new) White roto tiller 5 HP. I believe it has a B S engine, I have never been able to get the proper belt for the tiller and cannot get the proper adjustment, too tight and the belt burns, too loose and the belt slips. Does anyone have any answers? Thanks, Murray

I have a white Tiller and love it. I sold a 6hp Troy built and purchased the white 5 hp. It is a 5hp and is easier to use than the Troy built. I recently purchased a new belt and do not have the problem you discribe. I also have a manual with it. I will get the belt number tomorrow and send it to you.

The name on the tiller is White Motor Co, 2625 Butterfild Road, Oakbrook, ML, (not sure on the L)60521
Serial # on tiller 0301873, 3.5 hp B&S. I did not receive a manual with the machine, when purchased. Thanks, Murray
Note: this is a nasty design to get your fingers in to change the belt and loop the belt around the pully's. Thanks

I was trying to look it up on a site I use. I need more than the serial number. It was probably sold by White Auto and a few hardware stores. But it was most likely built by MTD. So, there should be an MTD number above or near the serial number. I would look for another tag for the model number.

I will get the necessary information in the morning. The tiller is stored in the barn. Just happened to think this evening, probably some person out there has an answer for the belt problem. Thanks, Murray

I use the Gates greenstripe belt on my Troy Bilt tiller. They will withstand the declutching and cost about $12.00. The one in use now is 6 years old. They should've stayed with the dual belt setup on the earlier Troy Bilts. That 4 speed was a big joke. Hal

Do you have the original belt? The best way to get a replacement is to buy from a lawn mower shop and take the old belt with you so they can measure it. Some machines(Murray for example) use very wierd metric sizes. The only place to get the right belt is from Murray.

Auto belts only work temporary. I use special blue belts from my local True Value hardware and they have worked well.

Do you have a model # of the machine or owners' manual with the belt part number?

If there is space, you could try using a slightly larger or smaller idler pulley. I would need to see the mechanics to see if there is a way to adjust it.
